my english is poor , sorry for that.

the problem is:
everytime when MySQL Installer check category update , it connnect to www.google.com first;
but in China ,we cannot connect to www.google.com,so i always   fail .

How to repeat:
in China  use MySQL Installer check Category update ,it will fail.

it says: no network connection.

Suggested fix:
 the update does not need to download file from www.google.com
so may be we can change the check url to mysql's cdn url.
or www.bing.com  or does not check the network connection status.

Hello wang jun,

Thank you for the bug report.
I could not repeat the issues while installing the MySQL Connector/NET 8.0.11 with Installer 1.4.25 version.
If you can provide more information, feel free to add it to this bug and change the status back to 'Open'.

Thank you for your interest in MySQL.

A user-defined URL now can be used to validate the internet connection
required to perform certain installation tasks. For more information, see
